The Montana Academy of Sciences 2017 Undergraduate & Graduate Student Research Grants Program
This year the Montana Academy of Sciences will again award research grants to undergraduate and graduate students. These grants (from $750 up to $1,500.00) are intended to assist and enhance undergraduates and graduate students to conduct research projects at any Montana Universities, 4-year Colleges, and Tribal Colleges.
Undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines are welcome to submit a research proposal application to this competitively funded program. Disciplines of students that have been funded in the past include: biology (all sub-disciplines), biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, environmental and climate sciences, geology, physic, and mathematics; as well as, several interdisciplinary fields. Each applicant of reviewed grant proposal will receive scores, ranking and summaries of reviewers.
Awards will be announced at or soon after the 2017 Annual Meeting and funds will be disbursed for research during the summer and/or the next academic year.
